With all of the big numbers concerning the debt, I think we sometimes do not realize how big numbers can be. First, I do not know what Homeland Security needs with 1.6 billion rounds of premium hollow point in combined 9mm and 40 S&W. If they were using it for practice, as they say, why would they not buy the cheaper practice rounds. Here is my point. In 2000 Winchester won a contract with the Secret Service of 1.3 million rounds of 357 sig and that was thought to be news worthy. 1.6 Billion rounds would equal 3,200,000 cases of 500 rounds each, or 32,000,000 50 round boxes. I do not know what the production capacity is to make ammo from ATK, Winchester or Remington, but it seems to me that 1.6 billion would be a hell of a lot of production. Is this contributing to ammo shortage? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
